Quoting Kristina-wife-mom-friend-:" Today marks a week since my dear Emily was born. I went into labor at 33 weeks on Sun Sept 9th. They ... [snip!] ... life in the NICU is such a roller coaster. I keep reminding myself two steps forward and one back is still a step forward. "
I'm sorry to hear your lo had a setback
Having a baby in the NICU is a hard and sad road.
Did they have any explanation as to why she aspirated?
Its usually not too common with the NG tubes.
Please know that your baby is in the best place she can be right now and the NICU's can do so many wonderful things.
It is the most heartbreaking thing to look upon your child in those isolette's with all the tubes coming out and you just beat yourself up for not being able to carry your baby to term
(at least I did)
My son was a 33 weeker born at 4 pounds 6 ounces, and like you, we had one MAJOR setback that almost took his life
thanks to some the wonderful medical staff at the other hospital we took him to, he is a healthy almost 4 year old.
The antibiotics should clear up the pneumonia quickly and she can just work on learning to take full feeds and keep her body temp.
I guess I cannot offer real advice, I just want you to know that I have been there too and I know how hard it is.
